Report: Under Armour offering Durant 10-year endorsement deal worth $325 million
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is about to become an indecently wealthy man.
This new report mirrors Frank Isola's in the New York Daily News, which cited the deal as being worth around $30 million per season.
Durant's endorsement deal with Nike is coming to an end, and Maryland-based Under Armour is hoping to pounce on the league's brightest up-and-coming star.
According to Forbes, this deal alone would make Durant the fifth-highest endorsement earning athlete on earth, trailing only golfer Tiger Woods, LeBron James, tennis star Roger Federer and golfer Phil Mickelson.
Given the enormous figure, it's hard to envision a scenario in which Durant turns down the offer. Then again, given Durant's stature, it's harder to envision a mega-conglomerate like Nike letting him slip to a competitor, regardless of the price.
